Construction on the Del Rio Trail began in December, and the project team on Wednesday, Jan. 18, will host a virtual public meeting to provide the latest updates.
The meeting will be held over Zoom and begins at 5:30 p.m. City staff and contractors will answer questions about construction and share next steps.
“We are doing everything possible to keep construction impacts to a minimum and will keep residents updated throughout construction,” said Adam Randolph, project manager and senior engineer with the Department of Public Works.
Information about the meeting and current activities was shared in an email notification last week. Those interested in receiving email notifications can sign-up online at DelRioTrailConstruction.org.
Project activities currently underway include:
- Tree removals, brush clearing and fence removals to facilitate clearing operations, generally starting from the south end of the project and progressing to the north through the rest of January.
- Obtaining approvals for traffic control plans in anticipation of construction activities at the intersection of all roadway crossings.
- Installing temporary construction entrances made of large, crushed rock. Before re-entering the road, construction vehicles will drive through these temporary entrances to remove dirt and prevent tracking onto roads at major intersections.
The public may see construction vehicles or equipment deliveries marked by temporary orange signs and staffed with flaggers to guide them into the project site as needed. Residents are encouraged to be safe and follow flagger directions and signs.
The project team will provide advance notice for work that requires traffic control. Currently, there are no detours or lane closures scheduled.
